Ecuador and Jamaica face off on Wednesday night in Las Vegaas with both sides looking to register their first win of the 2024 Copa America.

The Ecuadorian national team travelled to the United States for this tournament with plenty of confidence after back to back wins against the likes of Bolivia and Honduras in warm-up games. Despite going a man down after 22 minutes, Félix Sánchez's side took the lead just before half time. They were then outclassed by Venezuala in the second half and conceded two goals.

Jamaica also went into this tournament in fine form. The Reggae Boyz had gone four games unbeaten, registering three wins and one draw. Sadly, Heimir Hallgrímsson's men just couldn't keep Mexico at bay for 90 minutes as they ended up on the bad side of a 1-0 scoreline.

Ecuador vs Jamaica Betting Tipps: Under 2.5 goals

After defeats from both sides in their respective opening matches of the tournament, Wednesday's game is one you wouldn't want to miss for anything. Results of the recent head to head meetings between the two nations are also quite balance, with both sides boasting a win each from the last three, while one ended in a goalless draw.

Only one of those matches produced more than two goals and considering how solid Jamaica have been defensively of late - five clean sheets from their last eight outings -  I am expecting a low scoring encounter which could end level.

  • Best Tip: Under 2.5 goals
  • Ecuador vs Jamaica prediction: 1-1

Ecuador team news

Enner Valencia will be unavailable to Ecuador head coach Félix Sánchez on Wednesday due to a suspension.

Valencia is suspended after his red card against Venezuala on Matchday one in Santa Clara, California.

The 34-year-old will be dearly missed as he is the most experienced player in the squad and also the nation’s all-time top scorer.

Jamaica team news

One of the biggest absentee for at the Copa America 2024 is Leon Bailey. The Aston Villa forward isn't taking part in the tournament despite receiving a call-up from Jamaica head coach Heimir Hallgrímsson.

Michail Antonio took the responsibilities of leading the line against Mexico and should keep his place in the XI, while Michael Hector - who is currently a free agent - will be pushing for start in defence.
